It looks, that LPSC abstracts for this year are now available - LPSC 2012.
As last year, I made two files for downloading abstracts via download manager (I'm using Free Download Manager).
One is for sessions and second one is for automatic download of all pdfs between indexes 1001 and 2999.
Attached File(s)
Attached File  Lpsc2012_1001_2999.txt ( 109.32K ) Number of downloads: 253
Attached File  LpscSessions101_818.txt ( 8.87K ) Number of downloads: 136

I love these 'abstracts' because they are more like mini papers! (requiring 'abstracts of the abstract' which made me laugh).

Hours of good reading - especially the Martian glaciology, Mercurian volatiles and Titan climate stuff.

However, THIS really caught my interest (and given Emily's comment above I'll supply the link)

I'd never seen a projection of Dione's south pole before. Plus those putative extinct (dormant?) 'tiger stripes', a pedestal crater, and a funky looking cryovolcano. Very cool stuff.

There is a degree of unbuttoned informality about the whole event. The organisers give sessions quirky titles and in the mini-papers the scientists can use language freely, sometimes coining new words, and invoke extra-scientific cultural references for effect: comic, serious, or both at once. Such things might not pass peer review but they do not detract from the science in any way, quite the opposite in fact. The party mood is infectious even for a distant onlooker.

Thanks to antipode and others for the pointers to interesting topics. I loved the Martian basalt columns. I have a small piece of a much narrower basalt column in my attic rock collection (Carboniferous, Fife, Scotland).
